Don't Wear Tennis Shoes in a Wedding PartyWhat better way to show your ill-manners than by wearing tennis shoes in a wedding party?
The picture above is truly paradoxical: groomsmen dressed in formal suits with appropriate pocket squares and white carnations on their lapels, nevertheless donning their inappropriate tennis shoes.
Tennis shoes by themselves are not bad, but they are appropriate for sports, not for weddings. To wear such shoes in weddings is as ridiculous as wearing a dark suit with a carnation in its lapel when one plays tennis. It is a lack of wisdom, a disproportion, an extravagance that can only be understood as a rebellion against the conventional rules for a wedding. In other words, when these excesses are accepted without reactions the ceremonies of marriages are on the eve of disappearing.
To add to this show of incoherence, those young men are wearing sunglasses on a cloudy day.
A dignified man sacrifices his own comfort for the sake of showing respect in one of the most important days of his friends’ life. Doing so he would reflect seriousness of character, maturity and an understanding of the solemn act he is attending: the Sacrament of Marriage.
